Oh my we are so excited and leaving on June 30th 2016! To start LIVING OUR DREAMS! We will build our greenhouse and smoker and hen house and eventually a Sauna! We plan on turning the camper into a bath house, shower,toilet,washer and dryer, as i dont want these things inside my house. (I grew up with an outhouse) My husband has experience in building houses and our son and I will help him. We look forward to our new way of life, i grew up hunting and fishing with my Daddy and my older brother (trapping too) and look forward to filling our freezer! Now,if i could figure out how to make my Toilet paper HAHAHA, just kidding!
